Male or female?

Apparently, PetSmart doesn't segregate their male and female chameleons.
Is there any way to tell the difference between male or female when they're at a young age?

on what species?

if its a veiled, males will have a tarsal spur on the back of their back feet.

it looks like a pimple.

What species of chameleon, a veiled?
If it is a veiled then yes, it's very easy. On the heels of their back feet the males will have a little nub (called a spur), where as the females will not.
